One tom tom has a small tear on one side. The snare drum obviously needs a new cover.

Sue, just by going from the pictures you look like you have a set worth at least $1000. as it sits. Getting that value or more is another story. You most likely would get the highest dollar value for it if you fixed everything and you were able to know exactly what every piece was (model- usage- sizes- special features-etc.) Selling it as a complete set will get you the lowest value, parting it out piece by piece would get you the highest value just as selling it locally would get you the lowest value and shipping internationally would get you the highest value. Also selling it to a dealer gets you the lowest value and selling it to an end user gets you the highest value, Ting

I also agree and will add that it is a darn shame that folks often feel compelled for economic reasons, to parse out pieces. Sue, there are buyers out there (too few, sadly) who will respect and honor the piece, as a whole. I hope you can hold out and advertise widely and in venues with good prospects, and sell it altogether. I hope you can afford to do that. I would absolutely love to save this gem, but have moved into an apartment recently and simply do not have the room (my collection is in storage for about two years). I do have a very tolerant wife, but her grace is not without limits! The gentlemen on this site will be able to perhaps provide some guidance to you as to possible additional sales venue options. In any event, thanks for sharing this and GOOD LUCK!!!!
